Capri sees off Crystal Ocean to give O'Brien 5th St Leger

Capri sees off Crystal Ocean to give O'Brien 5th St Leger”

Ryan Moore rode Capri to victory in the William Hill St Leger at Doncaster for trainer Aidan O'Brien to win the final British classic of the flat-racing season for a fifth time on Saturday.

Moore gained his first victory in the world's oldest Classic as the Irish Derby victor beat runner-up Crystal Ocean and third-placed Stradivarius. "Obviously, it's a great ride to pick up", said Crowley who began his riding career over jumps with Yorkshire's Sue and Harvey Smith.

Stradivarius, the Goodwood Cup victor, struck for home soon afterwards but Capri's reserves of stamina seemed bottomless as he ground his way into a narrow lead and then defended it grimly as Crystal Ocean and Jim Crowley tried to run him down inside the final furlong.

O'Brien saddled four in the 11-runner race, considered one of the best renewals in recent years, and his outsider The Anvil set the early pace.

Capril went off as the 3/1 frontrunner for glory and after executing a flawless race plan the Aidan O'Brien trained horse, jockeyed by Ryan Moore, came out on top in the showcase spectacle, beating Crystal Ocean into 2nd, and Stradivarius into 3rd.
